Weekly Photo Challenge: The Road Taken

Safari Roads

This week’s Weekly Photo Challenge has the theme “The Road Taken”. I enter the Safari Roads of Southern Africa. There are not many things in life that are more exhilarating than to take a 4×4 before sunrise and head out into the African Bush. The road is bumpy, but it feels more like a refreshing massage. The fresh air is full of excitement. You don’t know what animal waits for you behind the next curve, blocks the road, hides behind the bush watching you carefully. Every trip down these narrow dirt roads will have its own surprises for you. If there is something you need to put on your bucket list, it is an early morning ride on the narrow roads of the African bush veld. To see what blocked my road and hid behind the bushes, continue after the jump…..


Have a great day ! Marcus

      1. My only experience of elephants in the wild was in Southern India, we were on a boat in a Wild Life Park.
        A herd had been bathing in the river and throwing dirt on themselves. By the time we saw them, most of the herd had finished and were making their way back up a hill and out of view.
        A baby one, obviously enjoying himself was lagging behind the others. Before he finished he turned around and trumpeted at us.Then ran to join the others. It was funny and very cute. No photos unfortunately but the imaged is burnt onto my mind’s eye.

  1. Oh my! Why didn’t I think of that approach 🙂 I have a great shot of a jeep stuck in the muck from our safari years ago. I’d title it “the non-road wrongly taken” LOL. Absolutely love your shots – thanks for reminding me of a wonderful memory. Probably my favorite adventure ever.
